This program is a consortium among Chicago State University's (CSU) Office of Engineering Studies, the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and IIT.
It is for high school graduates interested in engineering, but who are not necessarily ready for the rigors of university. Students who enter this challenging program complete the required coursework in mathematics and basic sciences at Chicago State University that enables them to qualify for transfer to accredited bachelor's degree programs in engineering at our partner institutions.
Students who meet the program's admission requirements will find that they are fully supported in their engineering studies by a full range of academic services and a staff that has special responsibility to provide sound academic guidance.
Preparatory coursework is available to assist those students who must acquire prerequisites to enter engineering studies courses. The program can be paced to fit students' scholastic background and individual learning needs.
